Circumferential Reduction & Cellulite Treatment

Eighty percent of all women over the age of 20 have cellulite, regardless of size or shape. Cellulite occurs when fat cells in the deepest layer of skin become over-inflated from an increase in fat storage. The fat cells protrude up through the tissue causing dimpling or a “cottage cheese” appearance.
VelaShape can help contour, shape and slim the body by improving cellulite and reducing circumference in as few as four treatment sessions. It has been cleared by the FDA for temporary reduction of thigh circumference and temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. Plus, it can provide results without downtime or significant discomfort.
How does VelaShape work?
The secret behind VelaShape is elos a technology that combines powerful energies to reduce the volume and appearance of fat tissues by precisely targeting them with heat. In addition, the vacuum and tissue manipulation evens out the skin to reveal a smoother, tighter figure. With this unique approach, areas including the abdomen, buttocks and thighs are able to be treated in less than 40 minutes.

How quickly will I notice a change?
Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother, firmer and tighter. Results in circumference and cellulite reduction will be most apparent six to eight weeks following the final treatment session.
Is treatment safe?
Treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There are no reported short or long-term health affects.

Does it hurt?
Most patients find VelaShape comfortable like a warm deep tissue massage. The treatment is designed to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours post treatment. Your skin may also appear red for several hours.
How do I improve and maintain results?
For a complete treatment regimen, it is recommended to get maintenance treatments periodically. Like all non-surgical or surgical techniques, results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regularly.
